Roy also scored the first TD against TTUN in the #1 vs #2 game. I'll take that. He is also an unbelievable ambassador for the program, showing the great you can do with the Buckeye Family. I've know Roy for a long time, and he is the type of player/person that makes me proud to be a Buckeye. Glad to see him and Spence together, only good things can come from that for both.
I am also interested in the second set if it doesn't work out with AndyVance. You can contact me via my 11W profile as well.
Pretty sure last week, first snaps at WR were Spencer, Corey Smith and Wilson. Still baffled that Corey Smith sees the field over Thomas (as it appears it is more that C. Smith and Thomas rotating, Spencer and D. Smith rotating). Spencer is a great blocker, but doesn't bring much else to the table (yes, I know he had a nice run after catch on the screen next week), and I am still not seeing much from Corey Smith (other than some key drops against VT).
Trust in Urban (not sold yet on Coach Smith), but uncertain as to the WR rotations we've been seeing.
The first 3 WRs on the field (if I recall correctly) were Corey Smith, Evan Spencer and Dontre Wilson. I also thought that maybe Thomas was hurt, but then once Corey Smith took forever to line-up and then didn't get set (causing another pre-snap penalty), he immediately got pulled by Urban and Thomas ran onto the field. Just seems odd. I understand Cincy's D was not very good, but think it would have been more beneficial to get Thomas some more game reps with JT.
If this is true, I blame ESPN for getting me excited today with this article...
I hope your trusted friend is Steven A. Smith... Fingers crossed this isn't true.
Buckeye Knight is a trustworthy seller. I bought his tickets last week, and it was very easy to get the tickets. Know some people are hesitant to buy tickets from random people online. Don't stress about Buckeye Knight! GO BUCKS
I thought he was a Michigan lock
Thanks Buckeye Knight! Appreciate the tickets, and can't wait to see the Buckeyes again in primetime! GO BUCKS
Pretty boring day at work, been on top of new posts today, haha
Imagine the outrage if Urban made that decision/statement. Would be a front-page story about Urban not disciplining his players.
Where is the national media outcry here like with the Hyde/Roby incidents from last year? I recall breaking news all over ESPN, and outcry that Urban cannot control his players and does not discipline guys. Understand Hyde/Roby were higher profile players, but as usual, Hoke and UM get a pass.
I can't wait for Ty Isaac to get his waiver to play immediately at Michigan, because NCAA
The NCAA weighed in and provided these harsh punishments to Penn State, not because of anything the current players did, but rather the culture that existed at Penn State that allowed for these horrible actions to continue for way too long. I think the NCAA, despite "bending" their rules, were well intentioned in their actions and justifiable given the culture existing at Penn State around the football program. Although the individuals associated with the actions are no longer associated formally with the university, if the NCAA comes in and takes away these sanctions (virtually admitting they were wrong in instituting such strong sanctions), the purpose of their actions will go to the wayside.
I know a number of Penn State fans/alumni, and the culture at Penn State has not changed. Obviously, no one associated with Penn State actually believes anything that happened during the Sandusky scandal was acceptable by any means (we can joke about them being irrational, but they don't agree the "cover-up" was OK or the Sandusky actions were acceptable), but the culture of free-range to the football program still reigns strong in State College. With a strong personality at Penn State in Franklin, removing these sanctions will only encourage the Penn State community to allow Franklin (or anyone else) interested in bending or breaking rules (whether NCAA, society or legal) to do so (I am not accusing Franklin or anyone else of any rule breaking with that last comment).
Website would never let me actually purchase the tickets I selected, until the website crashed and I used the Iphone app to get 8 in a row in Section 124!
Could they be considering moving the TCU/OSU game to Jerry World? Not sure this game as much juice given it is TCU (and not Texas, A&M, etc), and not sure I'd consider playing at Jerry World neutral site for TCU, but i could see this as a pretty easy move of the game.
Looks like Peppers may be the anti-Derrick Green in how he's approached his entrance into TTUN. Good for them, they need guys like him to lead and become relevant again. Hope he is the start of TTUN making the rivalry a little more fun (not saying last year's game wasn't fun, but you know what I am saying).
Just received the pre-sale code for those who purchased last year. Happy to share in hopes of having the stadium all-buckeye again!
Pre-sale code: B1G2014
Lets be real. Of course the NFL considers skipping out on an NCAA suspension more than domestic violence. They wouldn't want to upset the people governing their very cost effective Minor League system....
Where did you get the tickets? Did not think they were on sale until August. A link would be great.
I wonder how many of the student tickets sold were the Guest tickets. I think this is the first year that OSU has allowed non-married students to purchase a corresponding ticket package for a guest (not spouses). My sister is now a grad student at OSU, and because she purchased the student season tickets, she was able to buy a season package with her tickets for me as her guest to every game (at normal face value which is still great).
